H1B 2014 approved on august 8th.....

I got my h1b application approved for 3 years while most of my colleagues have got only for 1 yr. I just want to know is there any strategy behind the approval for petition period.

One of my frnd who has 3yrs of petition period went for stamping 2 months ago & didn’t get through the interview . what could be the possible reason, is that because he has a long petiton period? I have one more question, how long does it take to receive the hard copy of h1b approval document?

Petition period doesn’t impact the outcome of the stamping.

USCIS approves the petition for a duration depending upon:

  • what employer has requested

  • what USCIS seems appropriate based on submitted documents and information
